This year, Meenagh and CrossFit Airdrie have also created a version for those at home in lockdown, and they are encouraging athletes to partner up virtually. Examples of the Rx’d and home versions can be found here and here.

WOD 01-23-2021

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:

25 burpees
15 bodyweight back squats

Post rounds completed to comments.

Scaling:
This long couplet will challenge your will as much as your body. Choose reps and loads that allow you to maintain a steady pace with limited breaks. You may or may not be able to complete the squats in one set, and the later rounds will be particularly challenging. Newer athletes might want to reduce the duration of the workout.

Intermediate Option:
Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
20 burpees
10 reps ¾ bodyweight back squats

Beginner Option:
Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
12 burpees
12 empty-bar back squats

WOD 01-22-2021

3 rounds for time of:

30 pull-ups
400-meter run

Post time to comments.

Scaling:
This workout contains a high volume of pull-ups. Reduce the pull-up reps so that each round takes no more than 3-4 sets to complete. Try to maintain intensity on the runs.

Intermediate Option:
3 rounds for time of:
20 pull-ups
400-meter run

Beginner Option:
3 rounds for time of:
20 assisted pull-ups
200-meter run

WOD 01-20-2021

7 rounds for time of:

Row 100♀ / 150♂meters in as few pulls as possible

After each row, perform 1 bodyweight front squat for each pull taken — e.g., if it takes 12 pulls on the rower, complete 12 front squats before starting the next round. Reset the rower prior to each round.

Post time and number of pulls each round to comments.

Scaling:
This workout encourages hard pulls on the rower. Increase the damper setting and slow your cadence to minimize the number of pulls each round. Choose a front-squat weight that is heavy but can be completed unbroken when fresh.

Intermediate Option:
7 rounds for time of:
Row 100♀ / 150♂meters in as few pulls as possible

After each row, perform 3/4 bodyweight front squat for each pull taken.

Beginner Option:
4 rounds for time of:
Row 100♀ / 150♂meters in as few pulls as possible

After each row, perform 1 front squat for each pull taken.

Post rounds completed to comments.

Scaling:
Modify this workout so you can complete several rounds quickly and without rest. It should tax your legs and midline while challenging your overhead flexibility. This is a good opportunity for intermediate athletes to get some exposure to the GHD sit-up, but they should do so with caution and be mindful of its potency.
